    Do you take your Vitamin D a certain time of day?

    Also do you take your Armour the same time each day?

    Thanks...? I am on the 50,000 iu Vitamin D once a wk. When first tested my level was at 12.
    Anyhoo after a year now I am at about 30. I still think thats too low. I thought about asking Endo about taking a over the counter Vitamin D maybe 1,000 iu 3 times a wk in addition to script.

    >>>As far as vitamin D supplements are concerned, we believe cholecalciferol is the preferred oral form of vitamin D, as it is the compound your skin makes naturally when you go in the sun. It is more potent and perhaps even safer than the synthetic analog, ergocalciferol, in more common use. Vieth R, Chan PC, MacFarlane GD. Efficacy and safety of vitamin D3 intake exceeding the lowest observed adverse effect level. Am J Clin Nutr. 2001 Feb;73(2):288–94. Cholecalciferol is 1.7 times more efficient at raising 25(OH)D levels than is ergocalciferol.<<<

    I dont know about D3...thanks. I will have to research that.

    I do like my Endo...it was hard to find one, but this one agreed to switch me from Levoxyl to Armour. He seems to work with me.
